Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino is known for putting the ball in the net but on Wednesday he proved he is no slouch when it comes to keeping it out.

The Brazilian took to Instagram to share a video of himself in goal while a member of his family fired shots at him on the small football pitch in his garden. 

In the clip, which lasts two-and-a-half minutes, Firmino does not let a single shot past him, the shooter having to perform push-ups as a forfeit.

He even produces one stunning one-handed diving save, a save which gets the slow motion treatment in the post. 

Liverpool fans were impressed, taking to the comment section to joke that he could even do a job in-between the sticks at Anfield.

A number of them used it as opportunity to poke fun at back up stopper Adrian and former keeper Loris Karius, saying Firmino was better than both of them. Others even joked that Alisson’s place in the team was now in danger.

Firmino and his teammates have been training in isolation with the UK in lockdown due to the coronavirus crisis.

Premier League clubs are starting to allow individuals to return to their respective bases to use pitches to train with a return to action a possibility in June.
